Over the past few years, Oregon has become the cool kid of the United States, possessing all the “popular kid in school” traits. It’s beautiful, with a diverse landscape that includes volcanoes, beaches, hot springs, waterfalls, and national parks. It’s super social, with the most breweries, restaurants, and movies theaters per capita in the city of Portland. And everyone is talking about it. It attracts loads of tourists, and is the inspiration for two enormously popular hit TV shows: The Simpsons and Portlandia. Oregon citizens, you need to think about your reputations when you consider what breed of dog to get. We suggest a dog that can hang: the Puggle.

A Puggle is a trendy hybrid breed, a mix between a Pug and a Beagle—so you get two super popular breeds in one super awesome dog. The Puggle will not be intimidated by Oregon’s great beauty. These dogs are absolutely adorable. Puggles will fit right into the Oregon social scene. They love exercise and the outdoors, making them perfect hiking partners or pals to hit the hot springs with. And did we mention breweries in Portland allow dog patrons? Puggles are super friendly and laid back so they will not embarrass you in public.

So Oregon has a few shows that have boosted their popularity in the last few years. Big whoop! Puggles have made a huge splash on the dog scene. It is their appearance combined with their good-natured personalities that have made them incredibly popular with dog lovers.

Ready to take the next step in adopting a Puggle? Here are some resources to help.
